Bob's Italian “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” Salad
Here’s my favorite salad!
I keep this salad in the refrigerator at all
times. It serves as the base for many quick meals and is a terrific way to eat
more veggies! I also find it to be delicious to add cooked veggies (Marinated
Italian Vegetables or Steamed Marinated Vegetables below) on top of the raw
Top with kidney or
black beans, reduced fat cheese and Garden or Boca Burger® or turkey cotto salami. Mama Mia! Or, to above recipe add canned salmon or tuna and
fat-free Miracle Whip®
Chop up (or use bagged mixes) and
put together a quick green salad with lots of fresh vegetables (see Bob's
“Everything but the Kitchen Sink” Salad)
and serve with whole wheat spaghetti or rotinni pasta and bottled spaghetti
sauce. Add some ice water to drink and fruit for dessert. Yum! Consider
Chop up some fresh vegetables (or
use some delicious frozen vegetable mixtures) and make into a stir fry. Add
the meat from 1 - 2 chicken breasts or firm tofu (or tempeh). For seasoning
add garlic, grated ginger, and teriyaki sauce.
Make a soft
shell taco or burrito with canned black or salsa refried beans. Use LOTS of
chopped lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, and salsa. This is one of my favorite
microwave fresh fish with lime or lemon and red onion slices. Serve it with
any one of many varieties of frozen vegetables and whole wheat rotinni pasta
or brown rice.
Cook (microwave or boil--can cook up extras to keep on hand) small red, purple, Yukon gold potatoes. Top with a
variety of toppings: lowfat cottage cheese or other cheese, steamed broccoli
or spinach, salsa, lowfat chili, soup, or
